Made it Monday: Organization with a Freebie!

My Monday Made It involve organization!
For the past two years, I've used a dry erase board that I got at Walmart for $1.99.  IT IS BORING!

It keeps us organized, but I wanted something "fancier."  I loved this one!

Here's the son's middle name should be "I Will Break It!"  Bless his heart...he is seven and practices his American Ninja Warrier moves all over the house.  I can't tell you how many times he has knocked down the dry erase board from the fridge..there is no way I could use glass!

This was easy and free.  I used PowerPoint, background paper from Ashley Hughes, and a font from Cara Carroll
Even my husband liked it :)

This is my before picture of my desk organizer!!  FYI- I have random stuff stored in it because I moved in a hurry when I packed my classroom!!! 
I wanted to spice up my desk organizer.  I made drawer labels. The Tattooed Teacher had a great resource to help me!   I've used Modge Podge with scrapbook paper, but never with something from an ink jet printer.  I had to be really careful or it caused the ink to run!  I ended up using clear packing tape, and you can't even see it! 

I put the labels on blue scrapbooking paper.  I'm happy with the results :)  Now you can't see if my drawers are messed up ;)

I love these owls from Tracee Orman.

Here are the labels for you to download for free!! Just click on the picture!


  1. I like the way you were able to reuse what you had and make it better. Your projects look great! Hopefully, I'll be able to get something made for next week. I haven't been very productive.

  2. I love this frame idea! I can see it with rainbow colors in my classroom! :0) Thanks so much for sharing!


    1. I think the frame would be awesome at the front of the room with "I Can" Statements for each subject!

  3. Great minds think alike! I just changed up my drawers too! :)
